I think it is the enthusiasm the Republicans are lacking. Nobody is showing up on the GOP side to vote. We will lose the House but barely keep the Senate. I only care about the Senate anyway due to the judiciary.
I’m not so sure about the loses but wouldn’t rule it out. I think it’s more probable that we gain a few Senate seats while our House margin shrinks.
Realistically, continue stocking the judiciary with strict constructionists is the number one goal for the rest of Trump’s first term, as you mentioned. Hopefully, Satan calls Ginsburg home sooner rather than later.
We are going to vote in 2018 for the Trump agenda.
